Does anyone know if the FRPP arms have different/better hydro bushings? Also, do the PP models have different front LCAs than the non-PP models?

To me it seems the jury is still out on the revised LCA with heat shields, so I have yet to bring my car in to have the matter addressed.

The only models that are likely to have different control arms/bushings are the GT500 and the Boss Laguna Seca. On the V6 and GTs, the control arms are the same, regardless of what package is on the car.
